East Bay Street
Nassau, Bahamas

Born Free Fishing Charters wants to make sure you have a great time on the Bahamian waters, whether it’s fishing, snorkeling or sightseeing that you’re looking for while on your holiday.

The “Born Free II” is a 35’ Allmand sportfisher with the maximum passenger capacity of 6 anglers per trip. The boat features a private toilet as well as a small cabin, with plenty of shade if you’d like to get away from the sun for a while. Standard navigational equipment and marine technology on board include GPS and radio as well as a fishfinder. Soft drinks, as well as fishing licenses for all members of your party, are included with each trip.

Nassau is teeming with deep sea and bottom fishing potential, with some of the most common catches aboard Born Free II including Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Barracuda, Groupers, and many other species. All the appropriate fishing gear, complete with live and artificial bait, are supplied by the captain. The crew is very familiar with all the different bluewater fishing methods and take pride in seeing many of their customers returning to fish with them year after year.

If the crystal-clear waters call to you, just take a dip in them! The charter carries snorkeling equipment on every trip and you can take a break from the strikes to enjoy some snorkeling.

Not many great deep sea destinations are as close to the US as the Bahamas. Just a boat ride away from the Florida Keys, Nassau’s proximity allows you to easily stop by over the weekend for some excellent deep sea fishing, leaving the cold and bad weather back in the northern states.

You are free to keep the fish you catch, and the Born Free crew will be happy to offer complimentary cleaning of your catch upon request.

Treat yourself to an experience you’ll fondly retell for years to come! Book a trip with Born Free Fishing Charters and cast off on an angling adventure.

Born Free Charters is operated by Captains Philip and Captain Nicholas Pinder. Capt. Philip was the deep-sea fishing charter pioneer in Paradise Island in the Bahamas in 1978. He learned everything he knows about deep-sea fishing from his godfather Master Captain Milton Pearce of Nassau, and has since built a premier charter fishing business in the area. He believes in the old-fashioned way of doing business – giving each individual charter guest special treatment. This is why he has had returning customers for over 20 years. His nephew, Capt. Nicholas, joined the team in 2013 as a first mate.
